Winter Moonrise over Deep Creek Lake, MD

This photo was taken during a recent winter trip to Deep Creek Lake. It had been a cloudy weekend with a little rain and some snow but late Saturday afternoon the sun came out and the sky turned almost  scarlet in color.  I grabbed my gear and headed out to the lake, but  the view of the sunset sky was not as accessible as I would have liked. So, I headed for the moonrise. (Please see second photo and more text below)

Black and White Sunrise Photos

My favorite beginning is the start of a day, sunrise. It is the time of day where you are going to capture the best light. There is nothing like the solitude experienced when photographing a sunrise on a beach or atop a mountain where its just you and nature, (o.k. and sometimes if you are shooting the Washington D.C Cherry Blossoms at sunrise, it may be you and 150 other photographers) but I digress… (please see second photo and more text below.)

Deep Creek Lake on Ice: Part II Frozen Falls

photographing the fallsYesterday after seeing  a  note in the  The Deep Creek Times,  about an AP story on  ice fishing at Deep Creek Lake which  ran on washingtonpost.com where you can read the story here. I posted some photos I have shot in the  last few years of the fun things you can do at Deep Creek Lake when the lake is frozen.

The fun to be had on the frozen lake is just half the story in Garrett County, Md. Even more wonderment and winter joy await you at Swallow Falls State Park where the falls can freeze up after a long cold spell. The parks includes four sets of water falls. The biggest, Muddy Creek Falls, is shown in my photo above and in my photos below. (please see more photos and text below) Read More

Deep Creek Lake on Ice

I saw a note in The Deep Creek Times, (The best source around for Deep Creek Lake news and goings on) that The Associated Press moved a story earlier this week on ice fishing at Deep Creek Lake which ran on several online news sites including washingtonpost.com where you can read the story here. The story originated in the Cumberland Times-News  earlier in December where it can also be found on that paper’s site.

When the lake is frozen over, it is quite a site to see whether you are walking,  fishing, snowmobiling or parasailing. Here are some of the frozen lake shots I have captured over the years at Deep Creek Lake, MD. (please see more photos below) Read More
